Meet one of MSPP’s Military Students

Coy Pemberton is an Army Reserve Staff Sergeant (E-6). With a “strong interest in working with veterans,” Coy enrolled in the Counseling and Psychology Master’s program and has signed on as part of MSPP’s Train Vets to Treat Vets® initiative. “I am incredibly grateful to have found a home and a community here at MSPP, which makes me feel as though I am exactly where I belong.”

From a clinical perspective, having a military background has prepared Coy to work with many different types of people and given him “the strength to deal with even the most uncomfortable situations.” Speaking as a veteran, Coy reminds his peers to make no assumptions when treating veterans, “the military community is incredibly diverse and as such, clinicians must be able and willing to treat a vast range of people.” On more than one occasion, Coy has seen veterans treated “as though they are all cut from the same cloth” and remind those working with the military community to “be flexible” and not to generalize their experiences.
